    However unfair, for it to be the ilegal act of wrongful termination, an employer must violate a specific state or Federal law, regulation or constitutional provision. Unfortunately, there's no such thing that generally protects employees from "crummy deals" per se.

    In plain English, the employment at-will doctrine means that, in the absence of contracts stating otherwise, employment is presumed to be voluntary and indefinite for both employees and employers.

    Have you asked for an in-writing reason for your termination?

        Does your contract state that you can be terminated for suspicion of a crime? You probably already have, but I suggest you talk to the Union Board, make an appeal and if necessary, obtain legal counsel if there is nothing in wrting that states you can be terminated for suspiscion of a crime, especially since you were found NOT GUILTY.

        Best wishes,

            Keep us posted on your results...I wish you the best.
            Your case can be helpful to others who are wrongfully terminated.
